Nostalgic Notice: Catalog Play

Julius Lester at A Commonplace Book has two important posts on Catalog Pollution here and here. Now I am completely with him on this ever increasing problem. But I’m also with him that there are catalogs that are fun to look at. And that makes me think back to my childhood when I actually played with the Sears catalog. (That really, really, really big one — the size of the telephone book?) That is, my sister and I cut out things, created little houses full of stuff, and even dolls. Who plays with paper dolls these days much less catalogs?
